Lander, WY (AP) - Wind River Reservation officials say continuing vandalism of roadway signs is compromising highway safety.

Big John Smith, transportation director for the Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapaho tribes, is asking for help from the public to track down those responsible.

Smith says recent incidents involved vandalism of signs and flashing lights along 17 Mile Road and Yellowcalf Road.

Wyoming Department of Transportation spokesman Cody Beers said Wednesday there have not been any serious accidents or injuries because of the vandalism, but there have been a number of close calls.
